An unusual accident involving a flatbed hauler in Clarksville yesterday afternoon claimed the life of the driver.
Clarksville Police Public Information Officer Jim Knoll says a 66-year old man was driving the flatbed hauler north on Frosty Morn Drive around 4pm when the loader shifted forward on the flatbed and continued until it came to rest on top of the tractor.
The driver was trapped inside and died from his injuries. A crane had to be brought in from Hopkinsville to remove the loader from the front of the cab.
The name of the victim is being withheld, pending family notification.
